School and Teacher Programs


Girl looking at gold balanceStudents are able to make stronger connections with objects and concepts when they engage with the Museum’s outreach Teacher Trunks (formerly Discovery Kits) prior to their visit. Enhance your students’ learning experience by checking out a Teacher Trunk to use in your classroom for just $8 per trunk per week.

Filled with hands-on artifacts and activities, these trunks may also be shared with other teachers/classes within the same school during a rental period.

A recent revamp has made the trunks lighter, easier to handle, and they now include current curriculum-based lessons not only for social studies, but also math, science, and language arts!
